Ann Turley – Artist style #6

For the last quilt in my Paul Klee Faces series, I have chosen to create an image in a style influenced by Klee. Using commercial cottons and machine quilting I have taken elements from the three previous projects I made this year. Klee often used tight color palettes with closely related colors. Here I’ve chosen yellow, orange and a variety of browns. Facial features were often distorted and/or twisted and misplaced. It has been a fun year creating in a style influenced by Paul Klee.

Detail view:

  1. A very fitting end to your series, I like the way that you have used a mix of elements to create the warped features. The fabrics work well to create a harmonious colour palette. Great work.

  2. Excellent idea to complete your series. I like how you’ve made the deformed face, and the background puts a good emphasis. The use of colour is appropriate. Lovely work.

    The choice of fabrics and colours contributes to the harmony of the piece even if the face is distorted!

  4. Absolutely delightful and very playful. Have to agree with Caro. Cheers

    Fun and playful, great choice of colors. Bravo!

  6. The color of the fabrics goes well together and the faces you created despite their strangeness are full of expression.

  7. This is a very dynamic and vivid face. I like how the yellow separates the face and the background, bringing all the attention to the face. Well done!

  8. A fitting completion of your series. Good choice of fabrics, it makes the distorted face stand out very well against the darker background. Both dynamic and playful. Well done.

  9. A very playful end of your series. The yellow “stone” face really stands out against the brownish background.

  10. In your “face” theme you have nicely mixed Paul Klee’s world with yours. A wonderful and whimsical finale and fun addition to your series. Well done!

  11. A fun end to your Faces series. Good use of this limited colour palette.

    I love the palette of colours you have used, which give the piece a lot of impact. The design is a playful ‘full stop’ to your series and a very fitting ending. Great work

  13. I great choice of fabrics and colours. Nice to see how you designed a harmonious piece with “strange” fabrics.
